A quick reportage from the excellent and beautiful exhibition “Vilhelm Lundstrøm – The Epitome of Good Taste“ (Vilhelm Lundstrøm og den gode smag). Lower East designed the book for the exhibition, a damn fine book, and almost 300 pages. Go, check out the ‘epitome of good taste’ yourself, and buy the book of course.
From the museums website: “Vilhelm Lundstrøm (1893-1950) is one of the most famous and beloved Danish painters of the 20th century. He began by shaking up bourgeois taste with his expressive, flamboyant style. Later, Lundstrøm captured the modern spirit with his simple still lifes of jugs and fruit, and female models on blue backgrounds. Designers such as Poul Henningsen and Finn Juhl were inspired by Lundstrøm. They all dreamed of a better world through simple lines and functional forms. The exhibition tells a story of Lundstrøm and Danish design.“
The exhibition is collaboration between Brandts, Museum for Art & Visual Culture in Odense and Kunsten, Museum of Modern Art in Aalborg, Denmark.
Vilhelm Lundstrøm – The Epitome of Good Taste is on show at Brandts until August 27th, 2017 and then at Kunsten from September 15th, 2017.

Border Crossing – again
Danish newspaper Politiken just gave a fantastic review of the Border Crossing at Kunsthallen Brandts, Odense, Denmark – five hearts out of six. Once again we suggest you to check the thematic exhibition that touches on contemporary migration issues in films and videos by some of the world’s foremost visual artists/film and video directors out, exhibition running until September 16. And when you are there anyway, go to the bookstore and buy yourself a copy of the Lower East designed catalogue.
If you are among those five million people who actually can read in Danish, you can find the review as a pdf here. “Man bliver jo helt utilpas“ Politiken 22.08
If somehow you still are in Odense, Denmark, or if you find your way to the hometown of H.C. Andersen before August 26 you must go and see the exhibition ‘Out and Look’ with hundreds of pictures by the excellent danish photographer Viggo Rivad at Museet for Fotokunst at Brandts. At the day Lower East checked out the exhibition the lively 89 year old photographer (he will be 90 next week!) gave a couple a private guided tour, where he entertained with stories about his photos and journeys with great enthusiasm and a remarkable memory. Prepare for a fantastic odyssey in black & white pictures.
